Why is this happening?  Are these people P&G or will this be another Menu type thing where the product was used in dozens of animal products at different plants with different brands?  Thats what this is sounding like.  Doesn't anybody check incoming product before dumping them in our pets foods?

Unfortunately from what I have seen the answer to your last question would be NO! Seems to cost far too much to test ingredients and ensure a safe product when you can get away with doing nothing until animals start to sicken and die and even when that happens you can generally get away with paying for a fraction of the cost that your clients end up forking out whilst trying to keep their animals alive and and find out what has caused the problem, and absolutely nothing for ongoing veterinary costs, and all the other costs involved. So a really sound business decision to not give a rats arse about the quality & safety of your product.
